    I would order it in the size she is now. It is much easier to take a dress in than it is to let it out. Just tell her you must have forgot when you went to order it that she wanted it a couple of sizes smaller, so you accidentally ordered it in the size she is now.

    DON’T DO IT.

    Order it the size she is now. NO MATTER WHAT. Like @noritake22 said, it is MUCH easier to take a dress in than it can be let out. Plus it just sets that person up for bad feelings if she doesn’t meet her goal. I’ve seen it happen. Not pretty.

    I agree, order it in her size she is now. I’m so excited to hear she wants to be healthier. That’s sweet that she’s doing it for your wedding, uber props to her!

    i would say maybe 2 sizes is too much, what about asking her to order it one size smaller.  i wouldnt do anything behind her back though. if she insists on 2 sizes smaller, i think you have to listen to her.  she might lose the weight and be annoyed she has to pay extra in alterations.

    Order it in the size she is in now. Because while she might be annoyed that she would have to pay extra for alterations, she would also be annoyed if she had to order a whole new dress. That could also take a hit to her self esteem if she didn’t meet the weight she is hoping for.

    I agree with @MrsPinkBONBON: If you want to avoid her being mad about extra alteration fees, maybe you could offer to pay for or pitch in with any alteration costs? it would have to be cheaper than ordering another dress and risk not having one by your wedding date.
